Turmeric is a spice that I don’t cook with often enough! It is a super spice loaded with anti-inflammatory health benefits. Turmeric is often used in Indian cooking and has a bold yellow color with warm flavor! Since we are focusing on food inspired by travel this month for Healthy Food Friday’s, I thought this super-spice would make the perfect addition!
Turmeric is known to be a natural anti-inflammatory. So when my mom’s arthritis started acting up I knew I wanted to find some simple ways to incorporate Turmeric into meals. Adding it into smoothies, tossing with roasted veggies, and adding the spice into my egg scrambles or frittatas are my favorites!
To go along with this super-spice… a super smoothie!
